"Muppets Most Wanted", the Movie

 The Muppets gang goes on a worldwide tour where they have sold out shows everywhere! They travel to Berlin, Madrid and London. But they get involved in an international crime caper when they run into someone who looks exactly like Kermit! Kermit gets blamed for things he didn't even do!

  Get ready for some PUPPET FUN when we make puppets of ALL kinds ... paper bag puppets, sock puppets, finger puppets, spoon puppets, felt puppets, FURry puppets, marionette puppets ... well, you get the picture ... we'll make them out of just about anything & everything! Discover the secrets of eyes, become a hair expert, develop the right nose or beak for a face.

  Puppets need to perform - so you, along with Miss April, will put together a script for your puppet performance. Working side-by-side, you'll learn how to "make" puppets, write the story lines, and more. Learn how to walk the puppet walk, talk the puppet talk. All you'll need to add is your imagination! A puppet performance will take place at 2:30 on Thursday. ALL are invited.

Please bring an old sock (or two) to the first class.

"Frozen", the Movie

 Ever wish you had the power to "create" snow and ice and turn everything into a Winter Wonderland? Two sisters, Elsa and Anna, lived in Norway, in the kingdom of Arendelle, which was a happy place. One of the sisters, Princess Elsa, possessed that power! She created a living snowman named Olaf. We'll create our own silly looking, hilarious snowman from Model Magic and make a "Winter Wonderland" snow globe from a jar, complete with figurines & glitter.

  A traditional snack from Norway is a crispy flatbread. We'll turn our own homemade flatbread into a "flurry" of sweet snowflakes "frosted" with a lemony glaze. Mmmm! We'll try our hand at making snowcones!

  Paint a colorful winter scene with frozen paint ice cubes, make paper snowflakes, "frozen" silly putty and more "cool" projects.

  "Create" your own frosty, magical Kingdom, just like Arendelle and live happily ever after!
